Fabric valve for vehicle climate control system

The invention provides a fabric valve assembly (10, 10a, 10b) for a climate control system (12) of a vehicle. The fabric valve assembly (10, 10a, 10b) includes a housing (14) positionable in a vehicle. The housing (14) has at least one edge (16, 16a, 16b) defining at least one housing aperture (18, 18a, 18b) for directing movement of an air stream. The fabric valve assembly (10, 10a, 10b) also includes a plastic frame (20, 20a, 20b) defining at least one frame aperture (22, 22a, 22b). The plastic frame (20, 20a, 20b) is operable to move between a first position parallel to and spaced from the at least one housing aperture (18, 18a, 18b) and a second position spaced from the first position. The fabric valve assembly (10, 10a, 10b) also includes a cloth member (24, 24a, 24b) fixedly engaged with the plastic frame (20, 20a, 20b). The cloth member (24, 24a, 24b) extends taut relative to the at least one frame aperture (22, 22a, 22b) to close and seal the at least one housing aperture (18, 18a, 18b) when the plastic frame (20, 20a, 20b) is in the first position.
